Assessments

Our reading assessment period has begun. I am currently formally assessing each child's reading. I will be touching base with you individually via email about your child's progress.

Classroom Curriculum

Reader's Workshop - We are having fun learning more about book characters. Children are using their skills to infer how the characters are feeling and identifying character's personality traits. Please allow your child to bring in a book featuring their favorite character.

Writer's Workshop - Children have been writing opinion pieces and will be sharing their 'Best in Show' pieces this week.

Math Workshop - It's all about time! Children are learning how to use the hour and minute hand to tell time. Our focus is on telling time to the hour and half hour.

Science - We are exploring animals basic needs.
